The Bangkok Symphony Orchestra operates under the auspices of the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation and is privileged to enjoy the Royal Patronage of the Crown Prince of Thailand, His Royal Highness Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. The BSO is a non-profit making organisation, and is one of the very few symphony orchestras in the world which receives no public funding of any sort, relying entirely on ticket sales and the generosity of sponsors, donors, endowments and other commercial activity for its funding.
Each season, the Orchestra performs a broad repertoire of classical music, as well as concerts of more popular music from the Broadway stage, from films and television. Concert programmes also feature Thai classical and contemporary music. The BSO is committed to music education for listeners of all ages. Special concerts are given in schools, university campuses and in major downtown city parks during the cooler winter season.
The 70 professional Thai musicians of the BSO have expanded and enhanced their repertoire and artistry over the years through study with some of the leading teachers in Thailand and abroad. The Orchestra has performed under the baton of many internationally-renowned guest conductors including Loris Tjeknavorian, Takuo Yuasa, Massimo Paris, Paul Nadler and Zheng Xiaoying, alongside guest soloists such as Peter Donohoe, Anthony Camden and Dang Thai Son.
